Did you ever wonder how does the human body move on the dance floor with grace and elegance instead of crashing down with clunky sounds like a robot in the video your friend sent you at 3am? A dance teacher may tell you about posture, rhythm and connection but these are not the topics you were looking for.

This lecture will cover balance, control, and redundant dynamical systems by dissecting the properties of classical dynamical models such as inverted pendulum and spring-damper systems. Expect equations of dynamical models but also hands on experience of these concepts through dancing. Kinematics and dynamics will no longer be just terms you'll never get to use outside of the class room.
